Sample from large bottle at beer club. Some decent hops out front, but no feeling of "gotta have another".

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors. Pours a medium, frothy white head atop a copper coloured body. Nose is very off - acetone, cantaloup and watercress. Flavour is robust, good resiny hop front, some apples and bitter hop finish. Pretty good considering the lower ABV of 5.2%.

Bomber. The "Cascadian" signifies the PNW hop style used -- this is not a cross between a Cascadian Brown and Rye, which I figured (and was probably the only one). The pour gave a huge amount of bubbles on the side of the glass, same as their Vienna I had the other day. I figure itís hitches in the bottling process for a start-up, canít blame them. Hazy ruby amber.
The aroma is grainy with alcohol notes. Taste is of a classic PNW amber ale with good balance but not an "explosion in your mouth". The stand-out here is, of course, the rye, which gives a fantastic smooth mouthfeel I just canít praise enough. Bitterness comes through in the finish more than Iíd expect from 38 IBUs. This is quite good, and I think it will prove popular in the province. Cheers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Maloneís Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Hazy amber color, with creamy head. Mild aroma of rye, nice. Smooth mouthfeel, dry but not too much; quite good flavor of malt, cereals, rye, cookies; it has a light roastiness that may call for the Cascadian name; the hopping is balanced, providing some fruity quality.
It has some elegance; pleasant.

Certainly palatable, but not quite the complexity I might have expected. Perhaps Iíll give it a shot again and re-rate. I did detect the rye, but itís subtle. More of a generic pale ale, but decent session beer I think.
